I was delighted to receive full size products of Naturally Fresh Deodorant & their deodorant spray in the mail for a review. In addition, they
included a MoistStic which is a lip balm.

|these are the product they so kindly sent me for review!|
I have always felt bad about putting aluminum based anti-perspirant/deodorants on my skin. I know that it isn't good to use these....so I went in search of a natural alternative.
For a while I made my own deodorant, which while it worked most days, it still wasn't making the cut, and it was messy to use the "paste".
I wanted something simple, unscented, strong enough to stand up to my workouts, and aluminum free.
Naturally Fresh has a deodorant that is all of these things.
Their unscented roll on deodorant is great! It rolls on easily ( once you get the roller ball going, the first application takes a minute, just like any other roller deodorant). I love that it is unscented as I have never been a fan of putting strong scents in my underarms. I would rather smell like my essential oils, than a chemical aluminum deodorant.
Next came the big test. 2 weeks of intense, sweat inducing workouts that ALWAYS leave me stinky.
I tested not only the roll on for this, but also the spray.
I actually was brave enough to try a couple days with nothing to see the difference.
The days I went to the gym without deodorant....gross. I smelled like garlic ( I eat a lot of garlic and onions). Sorry if TMI, but these are things you WANT to know if you are going to try a deodorant...right?
So then I went to the gym with the roll on for several days and the spray for several days.
Both the spray and the roll on worked equally well.
I do like that I can spray my feet with the spray deodorant! I find that wearing barefoot running shoes without socks can make feet stinky, this deodorant remedied tha
Even nicer, Naturally Fresh ALSO has a foot deodorant. I didn't get to try that one BUT if it is anything like the spray that they sent me...it is fantastic and keeps odors at bay.

Now, these deodorants are not anti-perspirants. I will mention however, since I stopped the use of anti-perspirants several months ago, I noticed that my armpits sweat dramatically LESS than the did before.
There was about a 2 week detox time for me when I switch to the homemade deodorant. So, if you switch to a non-aluminum deodorant like Naturally Fresh, give your body time to adjust.
I found that hiking outside in the heat, the spray and the roll on both kept the stink away! They also worked fantastic on my Hubby!
He has always been a fan of Old Spice deodorant because of its strong scent and deodorant abilities, but he was never a fan of the aluminum the was putting on his armpits.
The old deodorants irritated and dried out our underarms...since using Naturally Fresh these past few weeks, we have had no irritation or dryness from our deodorants!
This is fantastic!!

I have a tendency to get dry chapped lips. So I was pleasantly surprised to receive the MoistStic lip balm in the mail. I wanted something natural. I do not like that many lip balms from other companies contain questionable ingredients. I had been sticking to plain coconut oil for my lips, but have found it a little messy and less portable in the summer time. The MoistStic has remedied this problem! It is easy to throw in my purse and not messy at all! I love the pleasant cool tingle I get from the peppermint! It moisturizes as well as my coconut oil, but without the greasy after feel!
I highly recommend both the deodorant and the lip balm.
I have found that the deodorant is an extremely affordable price as well which makes me even happier! I am actually spending less on Naturally Fresh deodorant that I did on my previous brand!
Please check out their website! They have other scents and a deodorant crystal as well!
